The show that made Siskel and Ebert famous. These two Chicago-based movie critics sit around and review movies, giving either "Thumbs up" or "Thumbs down."

Trivia

After Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert left the series to do At the Movies (1986), Siskel was suspended by the Chicago Tribune, the newspaper for which he wrote. The series was produced by Tribune Entertainment which, like the newspaper, was owned by the Tribune Company. Siskel began negotiations with the Chicago Sun-Times, the newspaper for which Ebert wrote. When the Chicago Tribune learned of this, they rehired Siskel. See more »

An Honest Review
11 March 2019 | by generationofswineSee all my reviews

This represents a dawn of realization in my childhood. It honestly marks the first time in my life I sat back and thought "I don't care what you think."

And I still feel that way about critics, especially now that the critics are attacking fans along with production companies.

But, hey, I review almost everything that I see here on IMDB, and I can guarantee you that I don't do it because I want to influence what YOU think, I do it because it's fun.

The bottom line is that this is a series of mostly horrible reviews on films that still managed to achieve their goal, to entertain.

So, nevermind what the critics think, like what you want. Hate what you want.
